Movie Quotes-Phrases

Famous quotes and great lines of dialogue come from speeches, one-liners, quips, punchlines, statements and insults. Many thanks to the many celebrated and unheralded screenwriters who have provided generations of movie-goers with such memorable movie quotes and lines of dialogue. Their words are remembered through popular use, critical acclaim, shock value and quotability, and for many other reasons.

Some lines become more visible or recognizable than was the original intention. Scores of memorable lines have captured our attention by the way the line was delivered, by the tone in the actor's voice, the electricity on the screen, or many have become catch phrases. Many memorable movie lines are not from the greatest films, but they have remained as part of the film's legacy (and etched a place in movie history) anyway!

Terminator The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger
His famous line "Hasta la vista, baby" from Terminator 2, a Spanish expression meaning 'au revoir', well familiar to Hispanic Californians, the crowds went wild, and voted him. (Well, very convincing quote! His opponents got scared! Other than "Hasta la vista, baby" can he spell other words? That's the question.)
Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal Lecter

Anthony Hopkins:
Wherever we went, people were shouting 'Hannibal! Hannibal!' I Felt like Mick Jagger a bit, or Sting even. I never experienced that before.

(Watch out! Hannibal Lecter Is Steel Free, Walking Amongst Us After Hannibal2001 , where Clarice Did A Bad Job...She Didn't Manage To Catch Him...)  Now The Quotes:

1) As your mother tells you, and my mother certainly told me, it is important, she always used to say, always to try new things. (Well, why not trying human brain!)

2) A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti. (Chianti? , Beans? , I Don't Like...!!!!)

3)On a similar note I must confess to you, I'm giving very serious thought... to eating your wife.

4)I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye.
(No Comment!!!)



Mel Gibson, Graham Hess

People break down into two groups when the experience something lucky. Group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance. I'm sure the people in Group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in very suspicious way. For them, the situation isn't fifty-fifty. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they're on their own. And that fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there's a whole lot of people in the Group number one. When they see those fourteen lights, they're looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever's going to happen, there will be someone their to help them. And that fills them with hope. See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?
(What About You?)

(QUIZ: To sum up: Graham says that people are divided into two groups: one believes that everything is a sign and when frightened are supported by a higher power, the other group believes that everything is random and find themselves facing problems alone.

In Which Group Does Graham Belong?   )

Bedazzled , Elizabeth Hurley .... The Devil , Brendan Fraser .... Elliot Richards

1) Satan: Could you pay for this......I left my handbag in the underworld.

2) Elliot Richards: I wish to be the world's most sensitive man. No, wait -- the world's most emotionally sensitive man. The Devil: Damn. Coulda had a lot of fun with that one.

3) Elliot Richards: Damn the Devil! Damn the Devil to Hell!

4) [Reading the Devil's contract] Elliot Richards: "I, Elliot Richards, hereafter known as the Damned"
the Damned?! The Devil: How about "the Darned," sound better?

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Johnny Depp .... Jack Sparrow
Geoffrey Rush .... Barbossa
Orlando Bloom .... Will Turner
Keira Knightley .... Elizabeth Swann

1) Jack Sparrow: Move away!
Will Turner: No!
Jack Sparrow: Please move?!
Will Turner: No! I cannot just step aside and let you escape!
Jack Sparrow: This shot was not meant for you.

2) Will Turner: Where's Elizabeth?
Jack Sparrow: She's safe, just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we're all men of our word really... except for Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.

3) Jack Sparrow: [looking at all the swords] Who makes all these?
Will Turner: I do! And I practice with them three hours a day!
Jack Sparrow: You need to find yourself a girl mate. Or perhaps the reason you practice three hours a day is that you already found one, and are otherwise incapable of wooing said strumpet. You're not a eunuch are you? Will Turner: I practice three hours a day, so when I meet a pirate, I can kill it!

4) Elizabeth Swann: Whose side is Jack on?
Will Turner: At the moment?



Anthony Perkins .... Norman Bates
Vera Miles .... Lila Crane
Martin Balsam .... Milton Arbogast

1) Norman Bates: She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes. Haven't you?
2) Norman Bates: She might have fooled me, but she didn't fool my mother.
3) Detective Milton Arbogast: We're always quickest to doubt people who have a reputation for being honest. (Honestly!)
4) Detective Milton Arbogast: Oh, someone has seen her, alright. Someone always sees a girl with ,000.
5) Lila Crane: I can handle a sick old woman!     (Well what happens if she isn't a woman?!)

Name of the Rose

Sean Connery .... William of Baskerville
Christian Slater .... Adson von Melk
Feodor Chaliapin Jr. .... Jorge de Burgos

1) [Regarding women.]
William of Baskerville: I find it difficult to convince myself that God would have introduced such a foul being into creation without endowing her with some virtues, hmmm?

2) William of Baskerville: How peaceful life would be without love, Adso. How safe, how tranquil... and how dull.

3) Jorge de Burgos: Laughter is a devilish whim which deforms, uh, the lineaments of the face and makes men look like monkeys.
William of Baskerville: Monkeys do not laugh. Laughter is particular to men.
Jorge de Burgos: As is sin. Christ never laughed.
William of Baskerville: Can we be so sure?
Jorge de Burgos: There is nothing in the Scriptures to say that he did.
William of Baskerville: And there's nothing in the Scriptures to say that he did not. Why, even the saints have been known to employ comedy, to ridicule the enemies of the Faith. For example, when the pagans plunged St. Maurice into the boiling water, he complained that his bath was too cold. The Sultan put his hand in... scalded himself.
